Scientific summary

My scientific activity is centered on caclium signaling in non-excitable cells and more precisely on calcium influx supported by ORAI proteins and regulation by STIM1 proteins. I am trying to decipher the different influx pathways and their respective roles in normal and pathologic conditions such as cancer, pancreatitis or cystic fibrosis
